OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. (WECT) - The Makai Brewing Company in Ocean Isle Beach announced they’re working on a special beer made specifically to benefit area sea turtle groups.

Loggerhead Lager will be released on Memorial Day weekend and a portion of the funds will benefit the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehab Hospital, the Sunset Beach Turtle Watch and the Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Agency.

The benefit will be held at the Makai Brewing Company on Ocean Highway from noon to 9 p.m. on May 25. The Butcher of Brunswick will also be on site serving sandwiches, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the turtle groups.

The custom brew will be the Makai’s first lager. They promise that if it’s a success, they will create more.
